Vikas Verma, principal, talent and performance, Aon Hewitt, said: "The digital era is opening up a great opportunity to seamlessly listen to employees across the talent life cycle in order to provide the promised people experience. However, this transition to continuous listening is not about another technology implementation.

"It’s a paradigm shift in listening and responding to employee experiences in near-real-time. For this to positively influence employee engagement, organisations must drive more empowerment and development of their people managers—as we see in this year's Aon Best Employers Singapore."
